Every hardcore shredder knows it's been a long road wrought with sketchy runways and annoying speed wobbles for video games that truly represent the sensation of skateboarding. Many have tried, but few titles capture the sport's pretty straightforward key elements: a simple, original premise (i.e. one board, myriad obstacles), sense of anti-authority, the nuance and array of tricks (and associated gnarly bails), requisite humor necessary to deal with said eating of concrete/cop hassles, and rad music to tie it all together. Easy, right? Wrong! Unless we're talking the exclusive rankers making up the following list. These — and only these bad boys, in the order given, are certified ramp royalty.

Anyone who says otherwise is clearly a poser, but go ahead and try your own list — just don’t be surprised when it ends in road rash.
